Vitor Belfort Says He Wants To Fight Chris Jericho, Jericho Responds


During a recent interview with the South China Morning Post, MMA fighter Vitor Belfort said he wants to fight Chris Jericho. Jericho would later respond on Twitter, asking who Vitor Belfort was. Belfort said,

“With myself being with ONE, and on the same network, I think it’s time for [AEW CEO] Tony Khan to give me Jericho, and I can whip Jericho’s butt. We can really make that fight happen. I think this is what the audience wants, we can draw a lot of audience for AEW and ONE. It’s time to cross promote and bring these two together. ONE has a lot of top athletes, including myself, and we can make some big fights in both.It’s gonna be phenomenal. Think about me and Chris Jericho doing a ONE fight and going over there, imagine how many fans wanna see that – him making his debut in ONE, and me making my debut in AEW. He’s ‘The Phenom’ in wrestling. He’s a very tough guy. He’s an animal. I wanna do things that really will shake the market. I know I’m not a kid any more, but I wanna create legendary fights – me and Chris Jericho is a legendary thing. It’s a one in a lifetime. I’ve not yet talked to [ONE chairman] Chatri [Sityodtong]. I’m just thinking out loud. When you say AEW, I think of him [Jericho], so it’s time to make that collision with both phenoms of both sports, it will benefit both events.”
